Nicola and Jude | Bump

I used to work with Jude many moons ago, and now he and Nicola are expecting their first baby. We arranged to do a before and after shoot -- one with the bump, and one with 'pebble' once he/she arrives. Nicola asked for an outdoorsy shoot for the bump, so we braved the September mizzle and headed out to Surprise View to catch the last of this years heather. The ground was very wet amongst the grass, little midges followed us round to each location, and the terrain tested the balance of Nicola, but we had fun and made use of my trusty rainbow umbrellas when necessary.

I'm looking forward to meeting the new arrival :)

Hazel and Dave | Wedding

I travelled down to London for the wedding of Hazel and Dave which was in St Lukes in Wimbledon. It was followed by a short bus ride to Battersea Arts Centre -- a fantastic space oozing with interesting textures and colours.

Looking back at this wedding makes me smile a lot -- I think that's because of Hazel's beaming face -- it's hard to be around this one and not feel happier. Honestly -- the happiest bride I've ever encountered -- a joy to be around :). From listening to the speeches this seems to be a quality of Hazel's loved by many.

Dave is from New Zealand and this formed part of the running motif of the Kiwi and the Hazelnut -- the cutest cake topper I've ever seen. Also - the face being pulled by Dave at the start of the speeches is when Hazel's mum said that Hazel had not married Aragorn as she'd always planned, but instead married an Ork .. lander, an Aucklander. I was sat with some of the New Zealand contingent -- lots of good banter to be had.

Congratulations Kiwi and Hazelnut.
